Check Into The Fashion Chalet
As it reads on her about page, “Fashion isn’t just a hobby, it’s an extension of who I am”…Blogger Erika Marie was born in Miami and was once a Barneys New York personal shopper as her style talents took her to North Carolina where she now works as a stylist and blogs about fashion. Because she has the ability to make even the simplest pieces come together fashionably (see a blouse, flare jeans and a clutch) Erika and her blog “Fashion Chalet” is our Weekend Read feature!
Go inside the “Fashion Chalet” with Erika as she talks about her blog and personal style with MyFDB.
How did you decide to start a blog? And where did the idea for it’s name come from?
I always took photos of my outfits in high school. It was kind of like a hobby. I would upload them online to share with friends on myspace, etc. Then I found out about blogspot in 2008 and started my own blog. My other fashion related hobby was making collages from old magazines. Now I can both blog about my outfits and collages online.
Are you a full-time blogger or do you have a 9-5?
I’m a full-time blogger. I do some freelance writing on the side part-time and styling as well.
Sum up your personal style in 5 words or less.
